Todd Monaghan, 2002, 44"/38"/1.5", oil, pastel, netting on canvas.
Angels in the Knite, painted by Monaghan in 2002, is a play on words. Angels in the night, Angels in the Nite, Angels in the Knit combined in the name to illustrate the them of Angels in the piece. If you look into the work you will see various angels flying about in the night as well as in the knitting of the netting textured piece. This theme of Angels is a recurring them in Monaghan's work. This is an early example of Monaghan using various materials to achieve texture and depth in the work.
